Gong Xi Fa Cai to you!
We’re finishing up whatever web design projects we have today before we take a one-week break for the Chinese New Year holidays, starting tomorrow. We will resume work on 7 February which is next Monday.
The Year of the Tiger was full of exciting projects and possibilities for us at Redbox Studio and we believe that the Rabbit will be kind to us as well.
One of our milestones in the Tiger Year was the birth of our own framework called The Redbox X-Factor. This is closely tied to Nic’s love for martial arts (did you know he is skilled in wushu and taekwando? Well, he is – he used to win trophies when he was in school).
In last week’s free workshop which was well-attended (including some last minute walk-ins!), Nic focused his presentation on this proprietory framework which was conceptualized from the principles of Wing Chun (Eternal Spring) martial arts.
If you’ve watched Ip Man (or Yip Man) the movie starring Donnie Yen sometime in the last 2 years, you’d know what Wing Chun is all about.
Anyway, if you are curious how Wing Chun and business and marketing are all connected, you’re welcome to join us in our February workshop.
Nic will be happy to explain how he came up with the idea, why this new knowledge will turn your pre-conceived notions of marketing upside down and how it will help you market better and faster in a world that’s becoming more saturated with ‘noise’. And most of all, how you can truly market sensibly, with ethics and heart!
In the meantime, we’ll be taking this break to feast, create some art as well as catch up with family and friends.
Each year, we’ve been celebrating Chinese New Year in Kuching, Sarawak with Nic’s family but this year, we are staying put in Penang. It’s good to be at home too and celebrate with MY side of the family and of course, with the cat. Margaret now weighs 5.4kg so technically she is a bit on the fat side. She is our own version of the Japanese Fortune Cat or Maneki Neko. (Speaking of Japanese, I am excited that Daiso is finally opening in Queensbay Mall! If you didn’t know, I am Daiso’s biggest fan and evangelist and always look for Daiso stores overseas when I travel.)
So here’s wishing you a great Rabbit Year (regardless of what fengshui masters or fortune-tellers are saying!). Our belief has always been this, when you have the right marketing smarts with the right products, every year is a good year!
KUNG HEI FATT CHOY to you!
